Business owners often blur the distinction between successful entrepreneurial start-ups and companies that transition well to professionally-managed, vital companies with staying power. Our client, Jason Schreiber, CEO of Arialink, recently won an entrepreneurial award from The Greater Lansing Business Monthly and was recently asked to comment on his own success, and how he uses his philosophy to create value.

Jonathan Raven, a Fraser Trebilcock shareholder who advises Arialink, and a former CEO of multiple companies, who first-hand guided companies in their development from entrepreneurial to management-oriented companies, said, “Jason grasps the distinction between the varied skill sets that successful entrepreneurs must develop and apply if their businesses are to grow and increase in sophistication over time”. We hope you benefit from reading his thoughts as much as we have.
